Calling all Bridge peoples!

Guess what I got to do today! Prune vines in the Gabriel’s newly acquired vineyard. This is exactly how a newly pruned vine should look. I had so much fun. What a beautiful day. What a glorious way to fellowship with God and man. (In a garden)

It was an amazing way to get a feel for what God means when he talks about pruning.

Joh 15:1 &2 I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser.
Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away. And every one that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bring forth more fruit.

You can't believe the conversations I was having with the vines. I was lamenting the sickly ones, telling the more robust vines to calm down. All the vines, weak and puny, or strong and out of control had to come under my pruning shears and be shaped for the most productive production of fruit.

It is quite an interesting view to be the one pruning verses the one being pruned!!! LOL

So all you Bridge people out there grab your pruning shears and give it a go. They could really use the help! Lots and lots of vines!

being pruned is something I had fought against. I have some things
I would love to hold on to but if God sees fit to prune then I must submit to the master gardener. I love roses and the 1 thing I am going to miss about where I live is the 20 roses I have taken care of planted pruned and loved so now I will be starting over. I will enjoy once again the planting and blooming of my rainbow of colors. and if you want to email me you can at

What a picture! Those vines sure do look bare after the pruning and to think that leads to fruitfullness, what a great visual leasson.
